“it was when I stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself I found there were no roots more intimate than those between a mind and body that have decided to be whole.”



Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. -V. Frankl
